Welcome to our new column Pet Rescues of the Week sponsored by The Spaw in Douglas – Cork’s only self-service dog wash n’ dry. Every week, we’ll be highlighting different pets around Cork city and county who need new homes. This week we’re featuring animals from H.A.R.T. (Homeless Animal Rescue Team). If you’re interested, please contact the rescue organisation mentioned in the pet’s profile and remember: don’t shop, adopt!
This is Bonnie
Bonnie came into the care of H.A.R.T. in August. She was a very young kitten with cat flu. It has been a long few months with lots of vet visits and plenty of TLC, but worth it all to see Bonnie now. She is looking and feeling great, and ready to find a family to call her own. Bonnie is a playful kitten but has a calm nature. She loves her toy mouse and ball, and has great fun playing with them but she also likes a cuddle on someone’s lap. She can be a little bit shy and will take a bit longer to get used to someone she doesn’t know. She gets on great with the other cats and dog in her foster home, but will also take time getting used to a new dog. Bonnie is not fussy with food, she will eat anything and is also litter trained. She will settle down and sleep at night but can be an early riser. Bonnie is fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed, wormed and flea treated. If you would like to find out more about Bonnie, please contact H.A.R.T. on 089-4341024. Home check and adoption fee apply.
This is Clyde.
Clyde arrived in with his sister Bonnie in August. He also had cat flu but thrived once in foster care where he was given the treatment and nourishment he needed. Clyde is a confident kitten and he likes to keep his foster mum busy. He is a typical male kitten, very energetic, inquisitive and always on the go. He loves his food and loves to play. He mixes well with the other cats and the dog in his foster home. When he’s tired he is full of love and wants cuddles and will let you know he wants attention. His foster mum says he is a bundle of joy and very funny. Clyde is very clean in the house and is completely litter trained. He is fully vaccinated, neutered, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. If you would like to find out more about Clyde, please contact H.A.R.T. on 089-4341024. Home check and adoption fee apply.
This is Seren.
Would an older, calm, easy-going lurcher be the ideal addition to your family? Well, look no further than Seren as he is all of the above and more. Seren is approx. six years old and 25 inches to his shoulder. He just wants a quiet life with some walks and zoomies. Seren does like company so someone who is home a lot of the time or another easy-going dog to keep him company would be ideal. He is not keen on dogs that are in his face and can be unsure when he meets new dogs but all he needs is reassurance from his owner that everything is ok. He mixes with numerous dogs in the kennels including boisterous ones and, because he knows them, he is not bothered. He responds by staying away from the ones he finds too much. Seren is house trained, walks well on a lead, enjoys spins in the car, and is crate trained. However, he just does not like cats. Seren loves affection and will look for it from any human he meets. He doesn’t jump on you though, just nuzzles into you for ear rubs. Seren is with H.A.R.T. since being found as a bag of bones on a railway track in Dublin. Surely it’s his time to find a wonderful home and get to spend this Christmas and many more with a loving family. If you would like to find out more about Seren, please contact H.A.R.T. on 089-4341024. Home check and adoption fee apply.
